  • Mid-Continent Railway Museum was a lot of fun for my family. The staff was so friendly, the museum was free, and the kids loved looking at the old passenger trains before taking our own ride. I do recommend riding in the caboose. It adds opportunity for a different view, and we all enjoyed it. Chris was a favorite for us, he was willing to share his knowledge and answer questions, and had a great attitude. We only wished the ride was a little longer.
  • We had a great time at this little out of the way spot. The work and care being put into the restoration is amazing! Our engineer and train man and conductor were super friendly and knowledgeable. We had a beautiful day for a relaxing jaunt through the countryside! Thank you members of the museum, you're doing a wonderful job and service!
